Dear Parents and Educators,
Welcome to Know Yourself!!!
When I became a parent just over a decade ago, I was reminded how naturally curious children are about everything around them. This curiosity extends to the most fundamental parts of who they are: their own minds and bodies! I created Know Yourself, a public benefit corporation, to help kids become fluent in how their minds and bodies work, so that they are inspired to make healthy choices throughout their lives. We believe in Aristotle’s adage that “Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.”
The Know Yourself Adventure Series is at the heart of our educational program. Our team of expert artists and educators couple beautifully crafted visual content with uplifting and engaging storytelling to help kids learn about their bodies from the inside out. Each installment in the series takes readers on a voyage through time, enriched with historical figures who teach important lessons about how the body works. The primary characters – our young protagonist Pinky, her science-loving skeletal mentor Dr. Bonyfide, and the Loops Crew, an eclectic group of skateboarding friends – overcome challenges and develop social-emotional literacy along the way. This makes Know Yourself’s Adventure Series an innovative gift for learners of any age.
Over the course of the year, you will receive 12 shipments – each containing an issue of our comic, science projects, historical lessons, and healthy recipes, delivered right to your doorstep. Our Adventure Series uses this range of activities to teach children about the skeletal, muscular, nervous, respiratory, digestive, immune systems, and more. The series is thoughtfully designed to nurture young people’s inherent desire for wisdom and wellness.
